The Google Pixel 2 is the smaller and cheaper smartphone option released in 2017 from the folks at Mountain View, California. However, it’s still a pretty pricey handset and you will likely need to get a case to protect your investment. Thankfully, there’s already a number of great Google Pixel 2 cases that will do the trick.
All of the cases listed support the Pixel 2’s Active Edge feature, which lets you squeeze the case to activate Google Assistant or silence any incoming phone calls.
The best Google Pixel 2 cases:
Editor’s Note: There aren’t too many new cases for the Pixel 2, but we’ll update this list as we find them.
Otterbox Symmetry Google Pixel 2 Case
Otterbox is a name to trust when you want high-end protection, and the Symmetry case brings a pop of color to the Google Pixel 2. It’s a tough hybrid case with a TPU bumper and a durable polycarbonate shell. The raised lip around the screen and camera should keep your phone safe from drops, but there’s no built-in screen protector. Otterbox’s Symmetry case is available in Summer Melon, Mermaid Tail, and Hello Ombre.
Caseology Parallax Google Pixel 2 Case
Caseology’s case for the Pixel 2 also has a dual-layer design and is made from TPU and PC. It offers military-grade protection with a MIL-STD 810 certification, although that also means that the Parallax case adds a bit of bulk to the overall footprint. A 3D geometric design blankets the back panel, improving grip and helping the case stand out from the crowd. You can grab the Caseology Parallax in burgundy, Charcoal Gray, navy blue, and Ocean Gray.
Moment Google Pixel 2 Case
Most phone cases just keep your phone safe, but the Moment case actually strives to make your experience better. It’s all about capturing the Moment thanks to the variety of lenses you can attach to the Pixel 2’s already-great camera. There are wide-angle options as well as telephoto shooters, and they simply snap onto the case itself. The lenses aren’t included, but you can grab the case in textured black or walnut wood.
Totallee Thin Pixel 2 case
If you want the thinnest case around, it’s tough to top the Totallee Thin Pixel 2 case. At just 0.02 inches thick, you’ll barely feel it in your pocket but it should hold up against scratches no problem. As you can probably guess from a case this thin, there’s no MIL-STD rating, and drops could be a problem, but it’s great for everyday use. The Totallee Thin case is available in Really Blue, gray, and clear.
Vena vCommute wallet case
A phone case that helps you trim other bulk from your pockets is doing something right. The Vena vCommute wallet case does just that, replacing your normal wallet with a protected pocket in the case. With space to store three cards or well-folded cash, the vCommute is convenient for a night out or simply going for a run. If you’re in the mood for a stream, the back panel of the case also doubles as a magnetic kickstand for hands-free viewing.
Spigen Tough Armor Google Pixel 2 Case
The folks at Spigen are well known for their phone cases, and the company’s Tough Armor lineup now includes one for the Google Pixel 2. As with the other Spigen Tough Armor cases, this one combines a hard outer polycarbonate shell with a more flexible inner TPU case. The shell is designed to protect the Pixel 2 from harm against falls and even comes with a built-in kickstand just in case you want to watch a Netflix movie without holding the phone.
Ringke Fusion Crystal Clear Google Pixel 2 Case
While having good protection for your Pixel 2 phone is important, some people may still want to show off their new purchase. The Ringke Fusion has a dual-layer design with a polycarbonate shell and an inner TPU lining. Yet the clear coating on the back of the case still supports a MIL-STD 810G rating, which means you can drop the Pixel 2 several feet and have it still work with this case. The bumper on the Ringke case comes in clear, rose gold, and black, in case you want the outer edge to have a different look.
